Today, we at Your Nearest Bar are proud to announce our first software release, called JetScanner. It is a little utility coded in Python (tested only on 2.7) that allows scanning pages from an HP JetDirect device that has an AiO or MFP device attached to it. Currently it is only tested with the HP JetDirect 175x, or J6035B. If you’d like us to add support for other JetDirect devices, please shoot an email to somedude at yournearestbar dot com.

The code is licensed under the GPLv2 and it’s available for download at The program has descriptive help built-in with the switch -h or –help. Current plans include changing the PDF postprocessing and adding e-mailing capabilities, so check back in the future for an updated version.
